Crocker Art and Film Program: Jessica Wimbley

The Crocker Art Museum's Art and Film program explores how artists, filmmakers, and curators use moving images and film in their work. Each program includes a screening of a short film, video artwork, or digital media production, as well as a presentation that spotlights how this medium fits within or inspires each speaker’s artistic and/or curatorial practice.
